Hello,
Can't thank you enough for this ministry. Although
I have a facsimile of the 1539 Great Bible it is good to be able to read it in my travels. Again thank you so much. I am celebrating 40 years in the ministry this year. God bless you all.

I think this ones by miles Coverdale. It has a quaint but authentic style and gives an insight into the culture of the time. Quite a serious departure from Gods Word in glossing over Moses sin of not honouring God at Meribah and Jehovahs subsequent judgement. An example of the French scribes "vowel pointing" of the language of their conquested nation.
A further example of leaving Gods name out replacing it with Lord supposed to appease the Jews and Catholics, but doesn't make sense in many instances.
